The HomeBase Mission HomeBase’s objectives are to seek out areas of the urban environment undergoing transitional changes and integrate contemporary art into the everyday local experience, opening up the role of art as an educational tool for cross-cultural dialog, social integration, and community cultivation. The topic of “home” as the basis for this inquiry is a universal theme that engages all populations – artists, local residents of all ages, ethnicities, social and cultural background and social status, and is explored through a diverse array of lenses. Through this process walls of alienation are broken through, and a new cultural and human understanding of ‘other’ is enabled. The HomeBase template consists of the following three phases: Residency – artists and HomeBase team members participate in an Artist-in Residency program that includes group dinners and education workshops with invited guest lecturers that are intended to stimulate the exploration of home in relation to the site, addressing issues related to the history of the neighborhood, the architecture of the building, and cultural notions of home.
